In 2021, in the midst of a global pandemic, Grand Giza Travel & Tours was founded. If after long bouts of lockdowns, humanity has learned anything, it is that we have a NEED to CONNECT, to EXPLORE, to MAKE A DIFFERENCE, to just BE our truest selves. The global pandemic made us trade out our Bucket Lists for our Must Do Lists.
Our mission is to craft unique opportunities for you, your family, and organizations or groups to RETURN to what the ancients called, ‘the Mother of the world‘…EGYPT. You’ve ALWAYS wanted to come here. Life, as we have learned, is far too short not to go after your heart’s desires! Listen to the whispers of your soul, and leave the details to us.
I’m Kimberly Roberts | Founder Of Grand Giza Travel & Tours
If today you went to my elementary school library, and looked at all the books about Egypt, you would see my name repeated on the checkout cards. Egypt has been whispering to my soul my whole life. But honestly, this small town, Indiana farm girl, NEVER believed visiting Egypt was in the cards for me, much less LIVING here!
When I came here, like you, as a tourist, I ached to get back. This decade-long world traveler cancelled all future travel plans, quickly returned, and unpacked my bags…for good!
And its been magical ever since! Why Egypt?
To be sure, Egypt is resplendent with unparalleled treasures, but its GREATEST treasures to me are in her people! You will arrive as a tourist, but when you must leave, you leave as a beloved family member that we await to see again. No other community in the world have I EVER felt this kind of inclusion to all! Its NOT a tourist-thing; its a way of life for all Egyptians.
I have a deep love for the soul, the life, of this place and its people and I can’t wait to share with you what I have discovered here!
I’m Walid Abu Shahad| President Of Grand Giza Travel & Tours
Growing up in the Bedouin-influenced cultures of southern Egypt, HOSPITALITY is part of my DNA. It is a century-old tradition that a traveler coming into a Bedouin camp is invited in to stay for a minimum of three days with the family and served as a king or queen. This is how I was raised. So it was only natural that with a love for business since the age of 10, a career in hospitality was always in the cards.
Egypt has so much to offer to all…from the ancient sites, to the modern amenities. Traveling with Grand Giza Travel & Tours, you can count on seeing the bucket list sites, but with fuller, more IMMERSIVE, AUTHENTIC, and EXCLUSIVE experiences.
Together, with Kimberly, I look forward to sharing with you our beloved Egypt soon. As we say here, ‘Fadal, fadal!’ (Welcome, welcome!)
